In this brief and easily accessible selection of prophetic messages, Professor Jack Lundbom effectively renews our understanding of how the prophetic messages, tender or fierce in tone, are related to our time, a time that is never less apocalyptic than the prophetic world.

Nancy He, managing editor of the Hong Kong Review

Jack Lundbom is a big-part player in the academic fields of Hebrew prophecy and Hebrew poetry. That he has compressed so much of his knowledge and insight into this great little book and made it so enjoyably readable—and informative and contemporarily relevant—for the general reader is a very considerable achievement.

Robert P. Gordon, Emeritus Regius Professor of Hebrew, University of Cambridge

In his presentation of these three ‘minor’ prophets, Jack Lundbom makes it clear that the message of Amos, Hosea, and Micah is still of major significance for modern readers of the Bible. . . . Common themes running through this part of Scripture are identified and explained with regard to their original context. At the same time, meaningful connections are drawn between the ancient world and contemporary society. Through the reflection questions, in particular, Dr. Lundbom helps pastors and lay people to reflect upon how God’s prophetic Word continues to challenge and comfort people today, in the living out of their faith. This is a great resource for both individuals and congregational study groups!
